Description

Research reveals that the frequent use of technology causes
distinct, short-term changes in students’ attention span, memory function,
critical thinking processes and social behaviour. The long-term impact remains
to be seen, but one thing is clear: students are engaging with new information
in different ways, so educators must shift their instructional practice
accordingly.


In Engaging the Rewired Brain, bestselling educational neuroscience
author Dr David A. Sousa looks at how technology may be changing the way young
people’s brains function and how educators can adapt instruction to keep
students motivated to learn. Technology, he argues, can support and encourage
effective instructional strategies for educators of any age group as long as
teachers and leadership understand 



  • the
    type of classroom that engages the rewired brain

  • strategies
    to determine whether, when and how to use technology

  • tips
    to help professional developers build teachers’ digital literacy

  • benefits
    of differentiated instruction, flipped classrooms and online learning.


With a glossary of scientific and technical terms and a resources
section to connect educators with supplemental materials and information, this
book is a must-have for anyone striving to understand technology’s impact on
the young brain and prepare today’s learners for an increasingly advanced
future.
